Tiki Bob's opened in 1955, when Bob Bryant left the San Francisco Trader Vic's where he'd worked as a bar manager to open his own restaurant. The very stylized tiki logo for Tiki Bob's was created by Alec Yuill-Thornton, and its appeal endures today. While Tiki Bob's didn't last long, and its space has been through many, many reincarnations (including a drug store most recently), the Tiki Bob's logo tiki still stands guard at the corner of Post & Taylor, giving a friendly smile to all who pass. The space is currently occupied by a French bakery.
Bob Bryant also managed the Tahitian Lanai and Papeete Bar in the Waikikian hotel in Waikiki when it opened in late 1956.
